Apparently the sweet sounds of Roy Orbison’s “Crying” make people want to fight. On Saturday night at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, country singer Sturgill Simpson covered this song, among others like Led Zeppelin’s “When The Levee Breaks” and Lefty Frizzell’s “I Never Go Around Mirrors,” breaking up a fight during “Crying.” “How the fuck can you guys possible be thinking about fighting when we’re singing this song?” Simpson said to a sold-out crowd without a hint of humor in his voice. He then ordered security to “get them all out” and carried on with the rest of the show. Watch below via Rolling Stone.
